The Eye of the Storm

That's where I believe I am.  You see that storm approaching and you know it's bad.
Rough seas ahead and there's nothing to stop its approach.
You know your world will be rocked and your faith tested.
You cling to the island of peace as though for dear life.
Anticipation and the fear of the unknown grip the heart.
Finally a the last peace before the maelstrom.
The fury is breathtaking.
Then as quickly as that it's fury seems spent.
You know it's over but how sweet this respite.
Few storm relics remain
We look out waiting for the next onslaught.
Soon the other half will be here
Prepare...it's not yet over.
